VSAAB Survey

Here's your chance to influence the VSAAB website and The Vintage SAAB Mailing List!  It's also a great opportunity to learn a little bit about your fellow vintage SAAB owners.

As the saying goes, "You can't please all of the people, all of the time."  However, with a little input from those who really use VSAAB, I hope to please most of you... most of the time!

Your feedback is very, very important.  I take these surveys seriously.  While I can't guarantee that you'll always be happy with the result, your answers here will be taken into consideration as VSAAB grows.  While the original intention was to provide a new survey every week or two, we've fallen into what seems to be a more realistic schedule of every month or two.   Be sure to check back occasionally!

Thank you for helping to make VSAAB one of the best sources of vintage SAAB information on the web!

VSAAB Survey #5  (CLOSED)

VSAAB 2001

I've been getting lots of great suggestions lately for new features and services to add to VSAAB.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to send in your ideas!  Some of these ideas will cost money to implement and all of them will take time.  It's important for me to find out how important each of these features are TO YOU so that I know how to prioritize their implementation.

I've been putting off the creation of a real VSAAB Membership Program for months and months.  It's time to get rolling.  Frankly, without the money that such a program would bring in, it is unlikely that I'll be able to bring very many of these ideas to fruition.  I know that many of you have expressed a desire to become VSAAB Members and I REALLY appreciate your support and enthusiasm.  With your help, VSAAB will continue to the best source of vintage SAAB information on the Internet!


Please rate the following proposed VSAAB features and services:

A Web-based forum with multiple, concurrent discussion topics
An on-line auction web site, specifically for vintage SAAB cars and parts
VSAAB hats, key fobs, window stickers, t-shirts and other "club" items
Pre-arranged discounts for service and parts at establishments who cater to vintage SAABs
Expanded parts interchange database
Your own VSAAB e-mail account, i.e. <joeboxer@VSAAB.com>
MORE e-mail each day from The Vintage SAAB Mailing List, >20 posts per day

Some Comments:

"They look to muscle car-ish for my taste, but I have been told that I have no taste."
"Looks Cool, (But I started with Vintage VW's) I would buy a set, but I would keep my stock wheels in the garage for every day driving."
"The wheels would soon look just like all the other SAABs out there. Wheels are always going to be dificult to find for these cars and with a few selections they all will look alike. (again)"
"I'd be interested in knowing what brand (Crager?) these rims are before plunking down the $$. Having a '71 96, (lowered) I'm in the market for wider rims. These would be awesome!"
"The style DOES appeal to me, but not for the personality of my car. Mine needs to have the vintage wheels it has. If I had a V4 in an appropriate color with other performance modifications, I would strongly consider these wheels."
"I have switched my '72 96 over to the GT/Sport 4 bolt lug pattern an use the Shelby/Minilite wheels from the 900's of the mid 80's.This works fine with 175/70 size tires albeit a bit close on the rear when mounting on the car! (the fabric axle straps have to be removed when installing) I also had to come up with mounting bolts to attach them also. I used allen head bolts which have worked fine for many years."
"I would prefer a more classic look to the rims.  Maybe it would be more practical to make hubs and rotors that fit 5 bolt 9000 rims (or other common 5 bolt pattern).  Then anyone could pick there own style of wheel."
